Let me get this straight... before this arbitrary line you've drawn at the end of the second round, there is
a player can to do to convince you that they care about winning. No post season points or game winning goals, no regular season accolades or accomplishments, nothing.
But if a rookie comes in with fresh legs after being scratched for the first two rounds and scores 3 goals in his first 2 playoff games... never mind the fact that he had nothing to do with the team getting to that point, or that he had 1 assist in the next 12 games... then you're sure he "wants it." That's what you're saying. That you can base more on two games than you can on an entire career.
